The 2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide magazine is out on newsstands now (and check out the digital version), and we’re giving you a sneak peek right here. Check out the running watch section from the guide below and check back to Triathlete.com for more Buyer’s Guide content.

Soleus Ultra Sole

$75, Soleusrunning.com
The draw: Time tracker, with chronograph and alarms

Available in an array of colorful options, the Ultra Sole is a robust running watch with basic functions. In addition to three standard alarms, there is also the H20 Alarm—a countdown timer that reminds you to drink up or refuel. The upside of this watch is its multiple alarm capabilities and data storage capabilities (it can save split data for up to 35 laps and 10 runs); the main drawback is the less-than-intuitive ease of use. You’ll be referring to the online manual to utilize the full range of functions.
